(You don't necessarily need to watch the CS before obtaining the garlic.)
  • You will receive the 10,000 gil back at the end of the quest.
  • Trading Magriffon the 10,000 gil will continue this specific quest even if other quests are currently active that involve giving Magriffon gil.
  • Each person who is involved in the quest must trade a tear to Tarnotik to be teleported to the BCNM zone. EACH PERSON MUST HAVE DONE OR ACTIVATED THIS QUEST IN ORDER FOR THIS TO WORK.
  • Tarnotik will continue to perform this service for you even after the quest is completed. One Ahriman Tears is still required for each teleport.
  • Check the Shaft Entrance for a cutscene.
  • Check it again and select the battlefield Return to the Depths.
    • As of the May 10, 2011 Version Update, the level 40 restriction on this battlefield has been removed. The Moblins' strength is unchanged.
  • Buffs wear on entry.
  • You will receive a cutscene as you enter the battlefield. Answer with the top option every time you are asked a question.
  • The Moblins Twilotak (Dark Knight) and three Moblin Clergymen (White Mage) and three Moblin Wisewomen (Red Mage) are in the back of the BCNM arena.
  • Only Twilotak has to be defeated to complete the BCNM; the other six can be killed if you wish. They do not attack with melee hits even when engaged. They only stand in the background and cast.
  • Defeat Twilotak to end the BCNM and receive a cutscene and 10,000 gil.
  • Once you complete the BCNM, when you zone out of Mine Shaft #2716 you'll be in Newton Movalpolos on a ledge, safe from the standard Moblins. If you do not have someone in your group who can Escape, talk to the NPC Sleakachiq on that ledge to receive a teleport back out to North Gustaberg, at the cost of 800 gil per person.
  • Return to Metalworks and talk with Ayame for the Bowyer Ring reward and to end the quest. You may have to talk to her twice to trigger the cutscene.
